My opinion of Parc Mini-Europe: is it a good visit?

When I think back on my visit to Parc Mini-Europe, the word that immediately springs to mind is “enchantment.” As a travel fan, I loved discovering or revisiting some of Europe’s most emblematic monuments.

From the moment I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the care taken over every detail of the miniatures. I was able to stroll through the streets of Brussels, admire the beauty of the Eiffel Tower, or stand in front of the majestic Big Ben. And all in a single day!

I loved discovering new monuments like Laarne Castle.

The booklet provided at the entrance was very practical. With each new miniature, I could read a detailed description of the monument and discover interesting facts.

However, I have to be honest, the entrance fee seemed a little high for this type of visit. Also, given that the park is outdoors, I’d recommend checking the weather before your visit. In the rain, the experience would be less enjoyable.
